    One String Tree.

    Looks like Vince's Telecaster has 2 Trees.

    Whatever suits your fancy.

    My preference is two but for no other reason than the only American Tele (an 83) had two.

    This probably has been covered, but it seems the D string sounds better without a tree. I always have used one tree for the B/E, nothing on the G.

    But I had one guitar that needed a tree on the G, and the triple string tree was the perfect solution.

    don't count on it... headstocks are suicidal they are always trying to find a way to damage themselves...why my acoustic fell over in the shower the other day and the only thing that dinged was the neck of course..don't ask what it was doing in the shower, its a long story...

    10 for 11$ - you can probably find them for less.. handy to have around the house.

    I use a Reverend triple tree, which addresses the 'banjoitis' on the G.

    The best of both. Staggered 18/1 Kluson Supreme tuners and a round string tree.

    I bought the guitar used, and hated the tuners. It already had a round string tree. Got some of these tuners used and cheap and just love them.
